What will you do with your yammy yzfr125 when you buy/get a new bike?

Are you planning on selling or keeping it?

Will you use it as a project bike?

Pass it on?

Store it away for its memories!?


I would like to think that I will keep her ( (and im aiming to!). To use it as a project bike which i would use on the weekend e.g. on a nice sunday morning with a 182cc kit conversion done, make it as lightweight weight as possible tearing country roads :D

What are you planning on doing?

I'd absolutely love to keep it
Unfortunately, I will never have the money or the space, so it's gonna have to go to fund something a little bigger :(

My plan is to keep it for sure which is why I will keep it till the day comes that I can afford to insure 2 bikes and have my 125 for everyday and commuting and then have a 600/750 to have for longer or faster journey.

If I had the money, I would like to keep it.
Maybe pass it on to a friend to use.

But unfortunately, I will probably need to to fund my next bike.
Although that all depends on what it is worth when that time comes....

I have done more or less 10k miles in just 6 months of ownership...
Putting it on 15k miles now, and the fact that it is an '08...

I know that Dunkirk's 08 with 20k miles would of been worth £1,000 as a trade in to a yammy dealer, which isn't too bad I thought.

I have a couple of options, as I owe nowt on the bike chop it in against replacement or could pass it on to one of my sons. Only problem with the latter I could not just sit back and watch it get ruined.

Any way all this talk of getting rid of your bike or what will you get next is depressing. I remember why I bought my R125, cause it made me smile every time I looked at her. Still does, as does the wife, been together 22 years not even thinking of chopping her in yet.

LOL bustagutt, very true I must say.

I thought of it because of the previous thread created.

Me personally, I cant sell or pass down my beloved 125 to anyone as I would hate to see it treated like crap etc.
Hence I'm looking to keep it!!! I must admit you are right in saying it makes you smile. Everytime I ride it she makes me smile! But sometimes I hate going out with my bro in law who has a 600 and he leaves me behind!

also is a 150kit or 180kit better? i know you will have to do a lot of changing with the 180 kit but will it put too much pressure on our little 125s ?

if i could go back in time i wouldnt have fitted my 180 kit, been a pain in the ass and can be a mission to get it started, i wish i had it standard sometimes for the reliability but then i get on her and ride, completly forget the problems and enjoy the power :p

there shouldn't be any issues at all with either. was your kit brand new, Aaron? who fitted it for you?
